Lee R’s Bilateral Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Kusuma 2010
August 18, 2013
Even though my specific case is atypical, my story is not. I call it atypical in that my need was not due to Osteoarthritis, wear and tear, running (in high school I was a athlete), or over weight. The only explanation for my dramatic loss of cartilage in my hips was that I have Psoriatic Arthritis (PA).
About 3 and a half years … Read the rest

Before surgery, Dr. Sharat Kusuma and associates were recommended to me by two friends that had successful hip treatments.
I went on the minimally invasive orthopedics website to investigate my options for treating my sore left hip. X-rays showed a spur and arthritis. The hip resurfacing procedure looked like an option.
On November 2012 Dr. Kusuma determined that I could have the hip resurfacing … Read the rest

Chris H’s Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Kusuma 2012
As a gunshot survivor, I suffered from partial paralysis that led to the eventual degradation of my right hip. At age 16, I had a major hip reconstruction that left my right foot mostly paralyzed — this was a very sad and unexpected outcome from what I thought would be my "saving grace." Unfortunately, Hip Resurfacing was not a known or popular option 22 years ago.… Read the rest

When the time came that the pain medicine quit being … Read the rest

No regrets – live life while you can!!!
In 2009 I was 34 and running about 20-30 miles per week and surfing every chance I had, but something wasn’t right. It was taking more and more miles on the road to get my stride warmed up and pace going and when I surfed I was feeling more and more stiff; since I worked behind a desk during the day I just attributed these symptoms to … Read the rest
